Jim Morrison was right when he was in search for the next whiskey bar
for there is something special about whiskey.
Whiskey is so special that the irish I mean gaelics; before any scots get angry;
called it “Uisce beatha”: water of life.
Depending on how a whiskey is distilled and which products are used the taste of a whiskey changes.
The irish for example distill their whiskey 3 times.
The scots distill their whiskey 2 times.
And in the good old USA they just distill it once.
So what to do if you want to learn more about whiskey
or if you just want to have some fun and try out something different.
Well than I found a spot for you thanks to my friend Jaeson:
Located in an old fashioned ducth building making
it a bit small and always crowded giving it a nice warm welcome.
The place has been in this location for over 35 years and still going steady as she goes.
Wherever you turn there is a bottle of whiskey all around you.
According to the last records they have now over 1401 whiskeys available.
If you have no idea what whiskey to try don’t worry the bartenders know what they are doing.
Just tell them what you kind of are looking for and let yourself be surprised.
I did yesterday with a lovely Japanese yes you heard it Japanese whiskey.
Another thing you should pay attention too is the tasting sessions that are
available as well at different times of the year.
You can also have you tasting at request and all sort of other fun things involving whiskey.
Depending on the whiskey and it’s age you will have to consider that the price will vary.
Go have a try its worth it and if you want to take me with you; I am more than happy too.
